Just announced today: Avatar will be publishing a series of ten extra variant covers for Providence #11. This new limited edition set are “Century” variant covers drawn by Raulo Caceres, artist of Moore-curated anthology Cinema Purgatorio‘s Code Pru. Each cover depicts a scene from Lovecraft fiction. Each Century issue retails for a whopping $39.99, with the set of ten retailing for just $285. While supplies last, purchase Century variants at Comics Cavalcade.
These Century variants are the only Providence artwork so far that is not the product of Providence’s hard-working artist Jacen Burrows. Though perhaps Mitch Jenkin’s photograph at the end of Providence #7 also counts in this category.
We’re doing some annotation of covers these days. Though Providence doesn’t come out until late May 2015, covers for issues # 1-3 have already been publicized by Avatar Press and their magazine Bleeding Cool. There are regular covers and several variant covers for each issue. The regular cover is annotated on the page for that issue (Providence#1, #2, and #3.)
